Psychics and the Bible

psychic

I was reading a magazine on a plane when I saw an article in which a Colorado county boasted that it had “not one, not two, but three psychic and healing centers,” which offer classes for the “spiritually attuned.”  According to the article, the classes allow students to examine “chakras, past lives, and aura layers . . . metaphysical spiritual tools . . . and the ‘child spirits’ interested in the person.”

Unlike atheists, who would fundamentally disagree with me on practically all points supernatural, the people running these physic centers do believe in the supernatural, they just believe in a non-biblical version. I call it non-biblical, but that doesn’t mean that the Bible doesn’t recognize that these practices exist; indeed, in many places in the Bible people are warned not to practice the mystical, occult arts – the kind of supernatural practices that don’t always recognize God and that certainly don’t bring you closer to Him.

That warning is for good reason. When you realize that the supernatural is a real thing, then you see quite quickly that followers of Jesus practice a completely different version of it than people in psychic centers. Accordingly, you have to decide which version is correct. A psychic’s non-biblical version might have you messing around with spirit guides or inner children, fully believing that they’re good for you. But in the Biblical version, these spirits are likely demons, out to kill and destroy you. Revelation 21:8 warns that the price for those who practice the magic arts is the second death in fire. In the spiritual war, choosing the right side is a must.

God warns us throughout the Bible not to do a lot of things for our own good, like a good mother or father would warn their children in the natural world. And because He loves us, he even tells us the penalty for choosing wrong. And He’s pretty specific about the occult.

Denise’s book, 7 Spiritual Truths and the Lies that Hide Them, begins with the spiritual truth that the supernatural actually exists. Psychics know this, but by practicing the version condemned in the Bible, they’re undoubtedly – and clearly unwittingly – choosing the wrong side of the spiritual war.
